You have got 24 hours in a day. When I say “study abroad” does that mean you need to study all day long? Well not necessarily, unless you are a robot. The usual questions that comes in the mind is where should I go, if not the college? Go to college but then abroad study is not about just studying your subjects. It is about understanding the culture of the place you visit. Because you learn more from the people and the environment and the situations then you ever do from the books.
So, anyone out there who wants to do their “abroad study” in London, surely stop at the following landmarks. Because experience matters, stories matter, and books don’t teach it. Dive in with me to experience London!
It completed in 1894 and was initially disliked for its Victorian Gothic design. At present this bridge is one of the most famous bridge in the world and undeniable landmark of London.
It was named after the 17th century frilled collared shirts called “piccadils”. And housed London’s first illuminated billboards.
Egyptian mummies and the Rosetta Stone are just two of more than 80,000 historic objects that can make you awestruck. One little thing, this 80,000 is just 1% of the British Museum’s entire collection.
So, go, work hard, follow your dreams and world will be yours.
STUDY ABROAD. CRACK IELTS. DO GMAT OR FIGURE OUT SOME OTHER COURSE. BUT JUST GO ABROAD.
You must have heard this. But then why? Why study abroad? Don’t we have good colleges in India as well?
I would say we do have and studying in abroad can be one hell of a fight. There is lot of paper work that needs to be done. Chances are that you feel home sick or may be experience cultural shock. There could be difficulties with understanding language and the classes can be more challenging.
WHY GO FOR IT THEN
You can sit in India with your friends and family but the exposure you get while studying abroad is worth a try. You get to know the different cultures of the world. Meet new people and make memories that last forever
Study abroad allows you to learn a discipline from a completely different cultural perspective. It allows you to develop skills such as creative problem solving, interacting with people from different backgrounds and lot more.
Stop being skeptical about studying abroad. It might be possible that you face some difficulties. But remember, it takes some cuts and bruises to get the perfect shape.
Sometimes it is better to know what not to do rather than knowing what to do. So, here are the Dont’s Of The Speaking Section-:
- Don’t speak in a monotone. Speak with enthusiasm.
- Don’t give yes or no answers.
- Don’t repeat the question. For example-:Do you like sports. Yes I like sports. Prefer,Yes there are many sports I find fun and engaging.
- Don’t go off the topic.Don’t expand too much that you forget the topic. For e.g. Don’t start with Toronto and lead to education and technology.
- Don’t say I don’t know. You should know about yourself.
- Don’t speak too quickly or too slowly.
- Practice speaking in environments you get nervous.
Don’t worry about being perfect. Even if you are aiming for a band 9 you need not to be perfect! If you make mistakes and can correct easily, do that. If you can’t do that, don’t. It might be possible the examiner did not even noticed it.
BE CONFIDENT. BE OPTIMISTIC.

Every interview, meeting or date that you are in has its own set of protocols. Going for an IELTS Speaking interview, well it has its own!! You may do your own experiments or try out the tested ones. Below are some of the tried and tested things that you can do –
- When you meet the examiner, present yourself with confidence. Go in the test knowing you will do great. Don’t be overconfident rather be optimistic.
- Be friendly.
- Body language is very important. So make eye contact and look at them but then don’t stare. Don’t talk in a monotone. Be a little excited about what you are speaking.
- Don’t use simple easy boring low-level words. For examples: I like Indian food because it is tasty. Good thing to do is look at the topics they will ask you. E.g. Food. Find vocabulary related to food. For example. Cuisine. So you may say, I love Indian cuisine because of the spices.
- Don’t overuse “I like”. Instead, use I enjoy. Or maybe I really love. I prefer sports etc. You may use others as well.
- Expand your answers. Maybe the examiner asks you some questions. Examples:Do you love playing sports? The answer you may say is no. Avoid doing this rather explain in detail. Don’t just say yes or no. Examples: Where are you from. I could just say I am from Almora. This won’t help. Expand the answer. I am from Almora and it is one of the most beautiful hill stations. Don’t be too large but then neither too short. One way to expand is by giving example. What is your favorite food? I love Indian cuisine. I like rajma. They make it using this and that.
- Practice. You know the types of questions they will ask. Practice a lot. Practice at places where you feel the pressure. With people that make you tensed.
Remember, practice and practice a lot. You are always just one step away from success. So, take the first step.
